Common Leftover Suggestions & Inspirations
Think leftovers are boring? Not any more!
Throw everything in a bowl, add sauce, warm it, and eat it. Yum!
Leftover Chicken ideas: if you are like us, we always seem to have extra cooked chicken in the refrigerator. Mixing it up with different sides that we find and a sauce always ends up better than we thought.
Leftover Salmon: some folks do not like leftover fish. Neither do we! But if you happen to have a little left over, just add sauce, and warm it up with other sides that you find in your fridge. Transformed!
Leftover Steak: change it up by trying a Mole de Puebla or Roasted Poblano & Garlic and you will have a treat for lunch or dinner.
Leftover Veggies are great with rice or pasta and sauce of your choice. So easy and delicious!
Freezer Tips: always keep this stuff on hand. Weeknights are always so busy and most of the time we are just throwing something together at the last minute or doing a leftover makeover. But that doesn't mean that we settle for anything less than delicious. We always have the following on hand for those nights that we want to get something on the table fast.
Frozen sweet peas: Brighten up any meal and pair with almost everything. Just defrost and serve. Easy way to get some veg in!
Frozen sweet corn: Easy way to get some veg in and delicious in so many things when you just want a little sweet to offset something spicy.
Frozen broccoli: Warms quickly in the microwave and is packed with more vitamins than most “fresh broccoli”. (Why does it have more vitamins you ask? When they freeze veggies, they pick the crop when it's perfectly ripe, and then it is flash-frozen within 24 hours. Fresh veggies are picked before they're ripe and then transported to your local grocer which takes 1-3 weeks. Veggies max out on nutrients when ripened on the vine, stalk, or stem.)
Frozen raw shrimp: defrosts fast in warm water and then cooks quickity split and pairs well with lots of options. Great source of lean protein and not expensive (we buy ours at Costco).
Frozen bay scallops: defrosts fast in warm water and then cooks quickity split and pairs with well with lots of options. Great source of lean protein and not expensive (we buy ours at Costco).
Crusty baguette bread. We always have this in stock. You can buy great quality frozen bread without a bunch of preservatives. #BreadIsLife
